Ahh, so much we DONT know about March-June 1968!

Re-mastered these performances could be completely mind blowing...

The Melodyland show (3/26) is tough, low levels and all, but the Dark Star is worth checking out, if only for historical purposed.


3/29/68 is simply amazing! The band, and particularly Jer are performing at an extremely high intensity, as evidenced by the Cryptical/Other One suite and what is probably the best ever New Potato Caboose, on this solid B+ Vernon AUD!

The 3/30/68 Carousel show is not far behind, featuring
a mind-bending Born Cross Eyed -> Feedback -> Spanish Jam segment highlighted by some snappy drumming and cool Pig organ-work on the B/B+ Cotsman AUD!

The third Carousel, tragically incomplete, includes some pretty sick Garcia guitar work on the excellent version of Caution.

"There you go...click on your link."

As Pig was one to say...speaking of which, I love the interplay between Pig and Jerry in OOne jams between verses...throughout 68, and easily detected in, eg, Two from the Vault, you hear Pig (not TC, yet) give a little riff, and then Jerry burns one screaming on the next vocal pause, before Pig finishes it off...just listen to it during Bob's first verse. Their interplay is something special.

Great stuff.

tell ya what, if they do ever open up the vault up commercially, like dowloading, i would lay down some green for some yet unreleased 68. not 69 since there is so much out there, but 68 for sure. then again i heard, that they don'e even have that much 68 in the vault, wonder if that's true or not

Ain't that the truth? From what I have read, and heard, a lot is not available, period. But, the Avalon shows in October, or one of the December shows that the Doc and I so love, would be a worthy selection.

Really not many shows in circulation, and a lot have cuts, missing tracks, etc.

Still love it.

Many of the late 1967--early 1968 shows were sliced up for Anthem. After they finalized the snippets for Anthem, they did not record until they got the bigger deck to play with (October). Take what you can from the audiences.

You know, all my beloved "ballroom" shows from January '68 are in the vault! They schlepped around the 16 track for Anthem. Guess they are saving em' for a rainy day?

Ah yes--in spite of my recent attraction to March, I like January more...in fact, lister that I be, I would rank it the following way:

Oct
Dec
Aug
Jan
Jun
Feb
Mar

For the year as a whole...

Depends on which side my seed comes up I suppose.

Good one.
